Community Volunteers Bring Big Changes to Kenton Elementary

Aurora Public Schools Community Project

APS community partnerships provide vital resources and opportunities for our students and families. Thanks to several community partners, Kenton Elementary students and staff will get an exciting surprise when they return to school in the fall.

The district recently collaborated with Children’s Hospital Colorado on the large-scale landscaping project at Kenton. This is the 12th year Children’s Hospital Colorado has partnered with APS on school renovation projects, saving the district tens of thousands of dollars every year.

At this year’s event, more than 100 community volunteers joined together to transform an empty turf space into a beautiful outdoor oasis. The newly renovated outdoor area includes learning opportunities for students and a space for the Aurora community to enjoy.

We are grateful to the many volunteers and sponsors who made this project possible including:

  • Aurora Schools Federal Credit Union
